I’m a jewelry maker right now

Posted on | November 30, 2008 | 8 Comments

On my journey of trying to find my creative voice/find a new career I decided to take a jewelry making class at Make Workshop. (LOVE this place!) I think I may have creative ADD. I am constantly researching classes and workshops to take. I make so many creative plans in my head of all the various things I’m going to make, but I can never keep up. BUT, I am happy to say the jewelry class was smash hit and I have been making lots of jewelry to give as holiday gifts (recession = budget Christmas).

The class, called Memento Assemblage, was taught by Deborah Stein whose jewelry line Bonbon Oiseau is heavenly perfection. It is right up my alley. She uses a lot of vintage charms (love) and a variety of mismatched materials in an off balanced but very cool way. I’ve never seen anything like her stuff. And to boot, she was one cool lady. I’m inspired by talented women who make a living out of creating beautiful things. I want to be among them.

And who knows maybe jewelry is my calling. Check out some of my first pieces, whaddyathink?

    These are great Amy. I love the gold. Love the leaf necklace. You are a very talented woman making beautiful things. It’s just the making a living part that needs to be ironed out.

    I think I sent Wendy’s (a friend from college) jewelry site to you awhile ago. Another friend of mine from college is making jewelry also. Here is her site if you want to check it out – http://www.lisajordandesigns.com/
